Production Management and the AD on Set

Wednesday, February 12, 6pm – 10pm | Film Co-op Members Pay: $25 | Non-Members Pay: $35 | Where: NB Film Co-op, 732 Charlotte Street, Fredericton, downstairs resource centre

The production manager on an independent production wears many hats in contrast to a commercial production. This workshop will cover: being hired as a volunteer PM, budgeting and breakdowns; setting up the production office where ever that may be; hiring volunteer crew with the director; workspace organization; production scheduling; locations, daily production reports; location management; petty cash; deal memos; cast contracts, craft services and much, much more!

First ADs must be authoritative team-leaders and motivators, whilst also being approachable team players. They need exceptional organizational and time-management skills. The ability to plan ahead, trouble-shoot and pay close attention to detail is vital. Overall, they provide the key link between the Director, the cast and the crew, whilst also liaising with the production office, and providing regular progress reports about the shoot.

Production Design

Tuesday, February 18, 6pm – 10pm | Film Co-op Members Pay: $25 | Non-Members Pay: $35 | Where: NB Film Co-op, 732 Charlotte Street, Fredericton, downstairs resource centre

The Production Designer conceives and creates the overall look, mood and style of the film, working in close conjunction with the Director and the DOP. This can mean adapting existing locations to ones purpose, or creating new ones from scratch. This workshop will look at the idea behind production design – its purpose in shaping a narrative – and the stages of practical preparation and production on a film, dealing with restrictions of money, time and resources.

Instructor: Glendon McKinney
